The shadow (Lucifer, fallen angel)


The shadow

Is a darkness

That we cannot heal

But can be bought to light

And only those of us

Who have the courage to dig deeper

For this whole understanding

Will come to know the peace that arises

From the pain of holding the tension of the opposites

The more we strive to do good

The more we summon up the shadow

For as humans we are born to be whole

Not fragmented and split into parts

Although this is what society tell us

Krishnamurti said “It is no measure of healing

To be adapted to an insanely sick society”

So try to eliminate darkness and you will fail

Only transcendence will bring the cure you seek

And to transcend may involve a journey so far down

That your soul feels it is being crushed by the heaviest weight

But mysteriously

With the capacity to bear it comes release

And a rising above

Remember always

That Lucifer was once an Angel

Who fell

And God encompasses all opposites

The heart of truth lies hidden in paradox

Mistrust those who say they are of God

And polarise Between Good and Bad

A truly awakened heart is on fire with an energy

That encompasses both

And knows them to be two sides of the same coin

A heart full of dark light wisdom

That has found the courage to embrace both

In the furnace of a fire

Reason alone

Could never understand

With a divided mind

Split from heart

And hungering body

Grown emaciated from

Lack of wholeness

Lack of love

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
